Dear Friends of Fairmont Opera House,

This time of year is magical—a symphony of joy, generosity, and the spirit of giving. As we’re wrapping up 2023, my thoughts turn to the stories and memories made every year within the walls of the Fairmont Opera House.

I picture our theater filled with the laughter of children experiencing their first live performance, the applause echoing through the hall as local talents take center stage, and the awe-inspiring moments when artists transport us to other worlds through their craft. You can see it in your mind’s eye too, because you and your families have been here with us. These experiences are the heartbeats of our community, and they are made possible by the enduring spirit of the Fairmont Opera House.

Our beloved facility has seen its fair share of wear and tear over these 122 years. We’re jumping into a Capital Facility Repair Project to ensure it remains a shining star in our community for the future. This project is not just about fixing what’s broken; it’s about investing in the very soul of our community and ensuring that the Fairmont Opera House remains a beacon of inspiration for all.

Your support during this season of giving is crucial. By contributing to our Capital Facility Repair Project, you play a vital role in the ongoing story of the Fairmont Opera House—a story filled with the warmth of holiday traditions, the magic of the arts, and the timeless community spirit. 

To make your holiday contribution and join us in this transformative journey, please visit or contact me at Every donation, wrapped in the spirit of giving, is a note in the holiday symphony that keeps our opera house aglow.

Let us unite as a community in our commitment to preserving the magic within the Fairmont Opera House. Your generosity will echo like a holiday carol, ensuring that the stories told within these walls continue to captivate, inspire, and enrich the lives of all who enter.

With gratitude and warm wishes,

Blake Potthoff
Executive Director
Fairmont Opera House
